Life Lately, According To My iPhone

Wednesday, May 2, 2012



our ordered carpet at home depot
our little painter (yes, joshua dabbed him with paint on the nose)
our painting helper, jazlyn
the current state of our garage
carpet installation day, took 9 hours
current state of living room
my boys taking a break, and celebrating hartley's 1 year birthday with a bone
(which did not make it into the picture obviously)
stairs before carpet
finished product of painting. 6 adults, 1 child and one very sore preggo later...
joshua putting together our mattress frame
first package in our new home from a sweet friend who sent this for baby girl's nursery-- i'm kind of obsessed!
community gym
community mommy + baby classes (reason #248734 i'm loving living in this master-planned community already)


*******

sorry to keep this short a sweet but i am seriously running on adrenaline at this point.
since wednesday, we've been going non-stop. friday-sunday we painted the house.
sunday we had to move everything out of our old place.
and then 100% clean it.
and who wants to really clean a place you're moving out of? i mean, seriously?
(but i will admit i did shed a few preggo tears when we shut the door and bid it goodbye.
our very first place of dwelling in arizona,
off of the street in which we got our puppy's name)
monday, carpet was installed.

my back aches, my house is in scrambles, and i've never been more exhausted

(moving 7 months preggo is NO JOKE)--
nor, have i ever felt more kindness from friends who helped paint, move furniture,
let us use their trucks, you name it...
i've loved the last couple of days of friends just stopping by,
offering meals, of community...

moments of kissing my husband goodnight on our mattress in the middle of the
living room because it hadn't quite made it up the stairs,
eating tacos on the
living room floor because our table wasn't set up yet,
and waking up next to my better half

in our new bedroom-- in our home that we own--
and being completely amazed at
all God is doing in our lives.
and talking about how in just 3 months, that nursery next door will be
finally inhabited with her beautiful, little face.


"You are more, You are more

Than my words will ever say
You are Lord, You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
I'm running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world, forever reign"
-One Sonic Society, "Forever Reign"

Just stumbled across your blog! Wow you have tons going on...congrats on the little girl you have on the way. I have two girlies and let me just say, girls are the best(I have no boys so I may be biased haha) Congrats on the house, such a huge project I am sure, but I can only imagine the satisfaction you both must have putting so much work into. One day hope my hubby and I will get to do the same.
